Advanced Aerodynamics

The front end design not only looks more dynamic and strong, it supports the facelift's stability at high speeds by being extremely aerodynamic. New body features to achieve this are:

* an extended area below the front fog lamps with optimized shapes * a more protruding lower grille lip * wider front tyre deflectors * new side sills that make the sides wider, so that less wind hits the rear wheels
* side mirrors optimised for low wind drag * new rear lamps that extend outward for less rear turbulence

Seven body colours are available with the Mazda MX-5 facelift, including two new colours - Aluminium Metallic and Metropolitan Grey Mica. The Aluminium Metallic colour contains aluminium particles that diffuse light and cause diverse kinds of reflections and shadow, depending on light conditions. Carried over are True Red, Copper Red Mica, Stormy Blue Mica, Marble White and Brilliant Black.
